movements so is the scene set for more political violence. on germany's would be governing coalition parties hammer out a deal to allow refugees to bring family members to join. i'm still go welcome to the program later today u.s. president donald trump will deliver his first state of the union address laying out his government's agenda for the year as have a look at a couple of the key issues he's likely to address on trade it's america first during his speech at the world economic forum in davos mr trump sat there american economy remains his top priority and that the nation was open for business but america first does not mean america alone when the united states grows so does the world. immigration and the future of the so-called

dreamers will be the other key issue the president suggested as you open to protecting the seven hundred thousand children of undocumented migrants who live in the u.s. illegally in return he wants senate to approve billions of dollars in border security funding. more than on this coming speech from g.w. so washington bureau chief alexandra novel welcome alexander what are you expecting from tonight's speech. president talk today about what is supposed to be his main message during a lunch with network and curse and he said quote i want to bring our country back from a tremendous divisiveness and he also said quote i would love to be able to bring our country into a great form of unity and that's what he's aides also told us that we can expect an
12:03 am
optimistic unifying speech and speech in which president trump is expected to call upon congress to get behind his ambitious infrastructure plan his ambitious immigration plan a speech in which donald trump is expected to tell his chief men and his aides told us that the president is going to convince his audience and all americans are profiting under his presidency that all americans from all backgrounds are being lifted up by his poll this is this however is a tough sell with many americans when we look at the president's approval rating which is floating around forty percent and that is at a record low. so if these briefings you're getting are correct and this is going to be a very different speech from donald trump this is as you say a unifier rather than a divider talking to the whole of the country rather than talking just to his base . well yes but actually that could be
12:04 am
a similar speech that the one the one we saw last year during his first address to congress which was technically not the state of the union address and if president trump sticks to when he sticks to his script he can be very personal persuasive and likable but the problem is for him to stay on message and the problem is also that the situation now is quite a different after this first year of trump's presidency and many people are skeptical because stacy even if the speech is grade what is going to happen tomorrow on twitter or or during the next rarely so many people are skeptical and the president will be talking to a very divided congress divided nation and a number of democratic lawmakers has already have or it has already announced that they are going to boycott the state of the union address sunday from normal in
12:05 am
washington thank you. let us pick up that this point about which tribe we will see tonight where the political scientist castle's also specializes in u.s. government so welcome nicholas which trump are you expecting to see or you trump or tweeting trump. something in between i think that the state of the union is too important for president and his agenda to win it. to say that put that bluntly but on the other hand off the cuff remarks will be part are part of his style so we'll see what the him promises on and the state of the union speech who is it for is this is this a domestically focused speech or does he have an eye on the international audience i don't think so i think that try president trump has always shown the disdain for the international community for the rules based approach that the international community works on that was championed by the united states for decades i don't
12:06 am
think that this is and then remember remember the state of the union is about the union so it's just fair and square for a president to address his audience or address americans as a whole but it surely will not be about american allies abroad or their interests what about alexandra's point the briefing that she received in which it was said that mr trump wanted to be a unifying factor can he. he promised the dream a stucco recipients a bill of love from congress and something was put on his table he didn't sign it by republicans mind you so i'm rather skeptical as i mean of course as always it's very hard to predict don't trust behavior nevertheless i am skeptic so but he's got to offer if he is genuine and sincere in this desire for unity and he needs
12:07 am
bipartisan support and he has to offer the democrats something. promises at the beginning of his political career were. quite revolutionary so to speak he was promising. republican conservative politics with morse public spending for you know the forgotten men women that he mentions every every so often so he could work very well with them accredit saying let's build a better infrastructure re modernize the country put bring forward digitalisation apprenticeship programs you know making the american public a ready for the jobs of the twenty first century these could all be very much unifiers economic unifiers that would make would already announced his recounts in two thousand and twenty but we'll have to see whether he goes into that kid. republicans aren't very fond of spending public money and with the tax law of twenty seventeen there's much not much wiggle room for these expenditures nicholas
